allNodeTypes is NOT undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.This command returns a list containing the type names of every kind of creatable node registered with the system. Note that some node types are abstract and cannot be created. These will not show up on this list. (e.g. transform and polyShape both inherit from dagObject, but dagObject cannot be created directly so it will not appear on this list.)
